Hello friends, family, or random person visiting this page,

First I want to say thank you! Thank you to everyone who supported and prayed for me during these past couple of months as I fundraised and walked with teens at Life Teen Camp Hidden Lake this summer. I can see why the Lord called me to walk with middle schoolers this summer and WOW ARE THESE BABIES AMAZING!!!!! The Lord showed me the innocence and beauty of children and truly showed me why HE desires us to become just like them. The boys I walked with and mentored at camp this summer will definitely not just stay at summer camp! I can't wait to visit each one of them within the coming year because all of these boys have stole my heart. I am beyond blessed to not only call these boys my boys but also my little brothers! How going through life hanging out with them, praying for them, and mentoring them whenever they need an older brother's perspective (and wisdom, lol) will be such a joy in life. I truly do love these boys! So thank you mission partners past, present, and future for supporting me because you have not only allowed me to change lives but also you have allowed for my life and heart to be changed for the better. And bubbahs, if you're reading this, I want you to know that I haven't forgotten about you (yes, I'm looking at you Bennedetto) because you all have my heart and you always will.

So why Full Time Life Teen Missions?! That answer is simple but the explanation is long! The answer: I want to change the world and full-time missions will be the "World Changing School" that I need to hone and understand my gifts, skills, and talents and to discern where and how the Lord is calling me in my life today. The explanation: first and foremost, our faith only becomes real to us when we share it and Full Time Life Teen Missions will require me to share it daily. Throughout the year, I will come into contact with over 6,000 teenagers who will come to Life Teen Camp Covecrest (oh yea, quick thing: I was placed at Camp Covecrest hahahaha but that's ok! Jesus told me I would so it's gucchi! Let HIS WILL be done, amirite?! Haha, ok, moving on!) for weekend retreats and for Life Teen summer camp 2017! WHAT AN AMAZING MISSION FIELD! GUYS! I WILL COME INTO CONTACT WITH OVER 6000 KIDS WHO JESUS WANTS ME TO LOVE ON AND BRING HIS MOST SACRED HEART TO THEM!!!! THE SAME HEART WHO YEARNS AND THIRSTS FOR THEM!!!!! OH WOW!!!! YES!!!!! OMG YES!!! I'M DOING THIS!!!!! Ok! Enough with the uppercase lettering (for now, hehe). A year ago, when I was in Alaska as my past mission partners know, I was given this call to youth ministry and specifically Life Teen Missions which I answered this past year by volunteering at the Life Teen, Austin, Texas parish St. John Neumann on their Edge and Life Teen Core Teams, being a Summer Missionary at Life Teen Camp Hidden Lake Session one, and now, finally, to become a Life Teen Full Time Missionary. Throughout this time, many people have helped and supported me through praying for my mission and endevours along with supporting me financially. I haven't been able to accomplish anything without the generosity of others.

This is where I need your help! First, continue to pray for me, my mission, and my fellow Life Teen Full Time Missionaries at Hidden Lake, Haiti, and Covecrest mission bases as we try to lead teens closer to Christ this next year. Second, if the Lord calls and stirs within your heart to support me financially THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING ME FOLLOW THE LORD'S WILL FOR MY LIFE AND MAKING MY DREAMS COME TRUE. Lastly, please share my story and mission with whomever you can! The more people who know about Life Teen Full Time Missions the more prayers we have offered up for our apostolate allowing for others to join and to support our efforts.

To my past mission partners: your generosity, love, prayers, support, and excitement have given me the drive, joy, and passion to give my life to satiate the Lord's thirst for His babies to fall deeply in love with Him quicker and sooner. Thank you for believing in me and trusting me with His mission. I pray that you will continue to support me through first and foremost your prayers and second, your continued financial support. For my future missionary partners: thank you for taking a crazy and adventurous leap of faith and trust and coming along with me on this wild adventure to spread the Gospel that there is a God who created the universe and all the stars in a blink of His eye but took the time to create you and die for you so that you could come home and spend forever in love with Him. The Lord wants His littlest and newest souls to fall in love with Him quicker and I'm here to satiate His thirst for them.

Thank you so much for visiting my page!! It's going to be awesome journeying with you throughout this next year and for the rest of our lives. May God bless you and thank you so much for your generosity, prayers, and assistance to spreading my mission.
